The article reports that Jefferson County, Alabama, Commissioners on Tuesday agreed to extend a deadline for Birmingham and the state to ante up their share of financing toward a $498 million stadium and entertainment complex that has been proposed for nearly a decade. While commissioners had said they wanted responses from the city and state by January 1, they agreed during their regular meeting on Tuesday to wait until January 31 for those responses. The proposal, which includes adding 250,000 square feet to the Birmingham- Jefferson Convention Complex's existing 320,000 square feet, also calls for building a 65,000-seat domed stadium, and creating an entertainment district for restaurants and shopping.
